    Firstly Bibi set up these accounts during his break from politics but it doesn't matter when he had them because whilst in THEORY politicians are supposed to lead by example in REALITY they do not doesn't matter if they are on the right or left they do not always lead by example. Bibi is also not going to be a politician forever and he thinks about his finances and if he can LEGALLY pay less tax outside Israel then why shouldn't he take advantage of any tax loopholes it they are legal, we do not live in a socialist paradise based on equality, we need money and we all want as much as we can get so BIBI wants to naturally exploit tax loophole, if we are honest with ourselves HOW MANY OF US WOULD NOT do what Bibi did if we had enough and we knew about the loopholes? Whilst criticising the right wing Netanyahu for his exploitation of tax loophole which he declared lets not forget the idol of the left Yitzhak Rabin held an ILLEGAL UNDECLARED foreign currency account at least what Bibi did was legal.
